Attention 8th graders that live in our service territory. You have a chance to win a trip to YouthPower Energy Camp.
Every year, Kay Electric joins Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives and electric cooperatives from across the state in sponsoring the Youth Power Energy Camp at Camp Canyon near Hinton, OK. The camp is designed to help students develop leadership skills while having lots of fun.
By forming their own cooperative business, students learn about leadership and business while interacting with other eighth graders from across the state. Campers will also gain leadership and teamwork experience through the ropes course, which is located on the grounds. Campers will also enjoy safety demonstrations that are put on by linemen and students even get a chance to try their hand at riding bucket trucks and climbing poles.
And that's not all – campers start the summer out right by making new friends, enjoying a pizza/dance party and taking part in a variety of activities including volleyball, swimming, ping pong, hiking, and a special “Surprise” outing.
Kay Electric covers all expenses related to the camp including transportation to and from Camp Canyon.
Energy Camp will takes place at Red Rock Canyon near Hinton, Okla. Teens who attend the camp will enjoy four days of fun activities that help build leadership skills, teach about electric cooperatives, and introduce campers to like-minded peers from across the state. All camp expenses are paid by Kay Electric and transportation to and from camp is provided by the co-op.
To win the trip to Energy Camp, KEC is asking area eighth graders to write a 250-word essay about: “Image a day without Electricity.”
KEC will select four teens to attend the camp this year. For more details, please contact Austin Partida at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-535-1079, or visit www.kayelectric.coop.
